A military pilot-led nonprofit organization focused on UAP with over 9,000 members.
We ask for your zipcode to tell elected representatives how many of their constituents want safe aerospace and transparency.
Congress passed the National Defense Authorization Act of 2023 with provisions to establish a secure system to collect information about UAP from witnesses.
We know what it takes. Ryan Graves and several of our Aircrew Leadership Council including David Fravor and Alex Dietrich were the first Navy pilots to come forward to Congress about UAP, and our advisor Chris Mellon has played a leading role in helping UAP witnesses come forward since 2017.
If you are aircrew or a military UAP witness and you want help coming forward, we can help.
We can help you navigate the process. In some cases, we may be able to directly refer your case to the Senate or the Department of Defense.Get Help from ASA
Americans for Safe Aerospace is a military pilot led nonprofit organization dedicated to aerospace safety and national security with a focus on Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP). ASA was founded by Ryan Graves, a former Lieutenant U.S. Navy F/A-18 pilot, who was the first active duty pilot to come forward to Congress about UAP.
Identifying domain awareness gaps is critical to U.S. national security. If UAP are foreign assets, we must respond appropriately. If UAP continue to defy conventional explanation — we must invest in scientific research.
ASA supports military and commercial pilots and aerospace workers impacted by UAP, scientists committed to investigating this mystery, and concerned citizens who believe in transparent disclosure from our government.
Each and every day, millions of us place our lives in the hands of civilian and military pilots, who are at the controls of a key lifeline of our society, protect us from foreign threats, and provide humanitarian aid to millions of our fellow global citizens. I am proud to be part of an organization that is placing these trusted men and women at the forefront of advocating for the policies and preparations that we so desperately need to know what’s in our sovereign airspace and how to keep it safe for all."

The establishment of Americans for Safe Aerospace is long overdue. As the chief meteorologist for the U.S. Navy, I dedicated my career to the safety of flight. I have seen firsthand how Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP) have placed military pilots at risk, and we need to better understand them to reduce that risk."

It is crucial for lawmakers to have access to trusted experts when working to address complex, rapidly evolving issues. That's why I am proud to support the launch of Americans for Safe Aerospace at a time when questions regarding the security of U.S. airspace are of growing concern to policymakers, journalists, the scientific community, and the general public alike."

Identifying most of the unidentified aerial phenomena serves the practical purpose of protecting pilots from real risks in our sky. But as a scientist, I want to know whether even one of these objects is not terrestrial in origin."
— Avi Loeb
Senator Reid sought to get answers and move the UAP issue from the margins into public discourse. It’s great to see his vision become reality. We should know what these objects are. It’s a national security and public safety issue."
— Susan McCue
I’m delighted to support the establishment of Americans for Safe Aerospace. Commercial and military aviators have a major stake in the UAP issue and a unique perspective to offer. Their observations and engagement will go a long way to raising public awareness and our understanding of the UAP phenomenon."
— Chris Mellon
I fully support the efforts of Americans for Safe Aerospace in making sure our aviation agencies and pilots have access to the best data and understanding possible. To do otherwise is a breach of duty to those who fly the planes, and the passengers whose safety they must ensure."
— Garry Nolan
There is a growing awareness that we have large information gaps when it comes to the safety of our airspace, and Americans for Safe Aerospace represents an important step forward in ensuring that genuine experts and scientists play a role in this discussion. I am proud to support ASA in bringing greater scientific scrutiny and crucial public policy advocacy to an issue that at a minimum represents a significant national security matter."
— Adam Ozimek
Americans for Safe Aerospace is the right organization at the right time. As our airspace gets more congested and more critical to our daily lives, we need to have a better understanding of what is in our sky for the safety of our pilots and the general public. The increasing sophistication of sensors and the advancement of machine learning provide us an opportunity to transparently study all unidentified anomalous phenomena both for the public's right to knowledge and the protection of our nation."

What are UAP? Advanced UAP?
UAP stands for Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena or objects in our airspace that cannot be identified. Advanced UAP represent objects demonstrating sophisticated technology. The government has reported hundreds of cases of UAP, including significant incidents of advanced UAP without explanation. Military pilots have reported UAP routinely flying over sensitive or restricted airspace, posing a potential risk to both flight safety and national security.
What are the reports about UAP from pilots?
Pilots have reported seeing UAP in the air for decades, but have had little support or recourse for their observations. ASA’s goal is to destigmatize the UAP issue and empower pilots to come forward with their accounts. We believe military and commercial pilot experiences are some of the most important tools we have to investigate UAP.
How can I learn more about UAP?
UAP Guide offers a helpful introduction to UAP that has been endorsed by subject matter experts on the topic. UAP Guide covers significant reports and incidents from witnesses in their own words as well as statements from policymakers, military and intelligence officers, academics and journalists.
Why was Americans for Safe Aerospace founded?
The organization was founded to advocate for transparency about UAP from the government and provide support for military and commercial pilots and aerospace workers impacted by UAP. We believe that identifying objects in our skies should be top priority and the American public deserves safe skies and transparency about these phenomena.
What kind of activities does Americans for Safe Aerospace engage in?
ASA engages in a range of activities, including providing education about UAP, supporting pilots and other aerospace workers, and advocating for transparency from the government about these phenomena. We are also involved in discussions at Senate UAP hearings and other events related to aerospace safety and national security. Here are the core principles that drive our activities and operations:
Who should get involved with Americans for Safe Aerospace?
Anyone who believes in the mission of Americans for Safe Aerospace and wants to join the fight for transparency about UAP is encouraged to get involved. We welcome everyone, from pilots and aerospace workers, to concerned citizens to scientists and academics and government officials.
What is Congress doing about UAP?
Congress is starting to prioritize investigating UAP thanks to a few key Senators and Representatives. Last year, President Biden signed into law historic legislation in the 2023 NDAA that:
While these provisions are encouraging, there is much more work to be done. Congress has only ever held two hearings on UAP, the first of which took place last year, and little was revealed to the public. ASA believes that we need more transparency from our government on this important issue.
